Alice In Wonderland

Through The Looking Glass

The Alice In Wonderland statue is one of Central Park's most well-known attractions. Families with young children flock to the statue. Kids love to climb on it.

Under these conditions, it's virtually impossible to take a photo of the statue without people in the frame.

One potential solution is to photograph the statue at night when very few people are around to impede the view. 

Be advised that walking in Central Park in complete darkness, while not overtly dangerous, can seem a bit unnerving. Add a full bag of expensive camera equipment, and you've got quite an adventure on your hands. (The Mad Hatter would approve!)

Here's a crop showing the detail in the carving. If you click on the photo you can view a larger copy.

Now, if you'll forgive me, I must be on my way. I'm late for a tea party.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens:     Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
